Free-to-Play Coming to HD Consoles and More

It comes as no surprise to anyone that free-to-play games will be a part of the current console generation and play an even stronger part in the next generation.

The story is too old to be commented.

Guild Wars is a free per month game...and that game did great. On consoles I expect Guild Wars 2 to do well (There's a console dev team for GW2).

Free Realms is pretty successful and I got that on my PS3 too.

I haven't tried the Japanese ones yet, but I will soon
